Sample cover letter for Full Time position at University


Graduate Assistant

Dear ABC,

I would like to apply for the advertised position of a Graduate Assistant at the International Students & Scholars Office.

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Computer Science and am expected to graduate in May ‘17. Prior to this, I have worked as a Technology Analyst, developing and maintaining one of the leading Core Banking software suites in the world. Working at a technology major for 51/2 years has inculcated in me great discipline and a healthy work ethic.

The job description suggests that the position requires the individual to show high levels of maturity and responsibility. It is also apparent that there will be a considerable volume of error prone work that will be bound by strict deadlines. Having held responsible positions before, where I was required to carry out critical duties like handling multi-million dollar transactions, day in and day out , and having worked under constant client pressure, I bring with me a fair amount of experience in working under similar circumstances.

My earlier product support experiences have regularly required me to interact with a client base spread across more than eight countries. The process of building a successful relationship with them has given me valuable insights into different cultures which I’m sure will come in handy for the advertised position.

Last but not the least, working at the Technology & Operations Centre of the PQR Bank for a considerable period has given me a global outlook. I can say that I enjoy working in a multi-cultural environment where there is constant learning and exchange of ideas, which often turns a, sometimes banal office environment, cheerful.

I would like to thank you for taking time out to read my letter and the attached resume. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
